What makes one massacre more newsworthy than another?

Why did the world ignore Boko Haram's Baga attacks?

Quote:France spent the weekend coming to terms with last week’s terror attacks in Paris that left 17 dead. The country mourned, and global leaders joined an estimated 3.7 million people on its streets to march in a show of unity.

In Nigeria, another crisis was unfolding, as reports came through of an estimated 2,000 casualties after an attack by Boko Haram militants on the town of Baga in the north-eastern state of Borno. Amnesty International described as the terror group’s “deadliest massacre” to date, and local defence groups said they had given up counting the bodies left lying on the streets.

You know we are being sold something, media and statesmen walking arm in arm with teh people. Is it the New World Poo being introduced to us?

Boko Haram's re-releasing Whiter Shade of Pale next month. It's all a publicity stunt, that's why MSM ignores it.

If it doesn't fit the agenda it's not worth mentioning.

Africans and muslims at home do not matter.
Only the ones who emigrate to Europe.

I think that is what pisses me off the most about
the neo-marxist "liberal" bullshit:

People can't see nor understand, that what is
happening to the so called 3d World is the worst
betrayal in modern history. Fleeing has become the
norm in too many places.

All while the entire debate in the West is about how
to facilitate that fleeing - not about how to try and
help make dignified, meaningful human life possible
in those 3d World countries.

The IMF, NATO et al sure as ğck do not seem to help.

It's only newsworthy if it can be used all over TV to frighten the masses, and they then beg for more nukes from their government.

Totally depends upon who is being massacred...

If fifty people are massacred in Washington DC its media spun and pumped up as being a near end of the world event...

If fifty people are massacred in for one example of many other places Sierra Leone as they are being massacred there on an almost daily basis its virtually completely and totally ignored by the government puppets we call the media and treated as a who really gives a f##k situation...

In Sierra Leone where pregnant women walking down the street are ambushed and attacked by boy soldiers who carve out the womens baby from her body with knives and machetes and rifle bayonets in order to clarify their money bet about whether or not those doomed women are carrying a baby boy or a baby girl...

Hey lets face the horrible truth of realizing without delusional denial that most likely we are damned souls trapped in flesh and condemned to be hurled into hell where we probably are...

Quote: Yet the toll for women and girls was much higher than the war dead: Physicians for Human Rights estimates that during the conflict, between 215,000 and 257,000 of them were subjected to sexualized violence.

According to de Jong and to proceedings at the Special Court of Sierra Leone, rebel forces frequently placed bets on the sex of a pregnant mother’s child, then mutilated the mother to find out, killing both mother and fetus.

“They tied the women down with their legs eagle spread and took a sharpened stick and jabbed them inside their wombs until the babies came out on the sticks.”
